[Official Video] Kelly Rowland - Keep It Between Us
Kelly Rowland's Here I Am album felt, on the whole, like a bit of a let down. With the mass exposure afforded her by her duties as X Factor judge, the potential was there for the ex Destiny's Child star to deliver a truly stellar pop record that would be lapped up in its tens of thousands just as Cheryl Cole had done in previous years.
But instead, the album felt largely flat and uninteresting, a playing-over of by-the-numbers R&B/Pop - the kind of stuff the likes of Jason Derulo have built their careers on. And Kelly's better than that, we know she is. But when the album's best track was year-old dance anthem Commander, you knew things weren't going to end well.
But that's not to say the record didn't have its redeeming features, and new single Keep It Between Us was one of the best. A haunting, sensual slow-jam that sees Kelly exploring some more adventurous electronica laced chill-out vibes, the track is a delightful reminder of how good a star of Kelly's calibre can be when she wants to be. Beautiful, luscious, Keep It Between Us makes us want to fall in love with Miss Rowland all over again.
